Grandad Can't See His Feet

©

Published: April 11, 2019

Granddad's got new glasses,
But he still can't see his feet.
No, his eyes are not the problem.
It's the amount of food he eats.

People often stop and ask,
"Is his belly real,
Or did he eat a basketball
With last night's evening meal?"

One day he'll surely pop
And Gran will go berserk. She'll say,
"See what you've done, you greedy old fool,
Making me more work."

Granddad will simply laugh and say,
"Now look, my turtle dove,
If I keep getting bigger,
There'll be more of me to love."

He calls himself the perfect man,
"Every Grandma's dream,"
Then a smirk spreads across his face
Like the cat that got the cream.

Granddad may be extra large,
But he's a sweet and lovely guy,
The heavyweight champion of the world,
And the toffee apple of my eye.

Grandma may be splittin hairs
to call Grandpa rotund,
but I believe she's got it right
as he weighs in at a quarter ton!

And just between you and me
and the lamppost on the corner,
if he eats himself any larger
he'll have a date with the local coroner.

Got a real kick out of your poem, Graham. Thanks for the chuckles.
